I love these zucchini patties. These patties are an excellent way to use up those extra zucchinis that you have and have no clue what to do with. My patties are a bit different because I’m using provolone cheese, but of course if you don’t have provolone you can use mozzarella cheese. These cheesy patties are so delicious and decadent, they’ll become a staple in your home. Once I made these with a cheese mix that I had, mozzarella, provolone, asiago and parmesan and they turned out amazing, so feel free to use whatever your favorite cheese is or whatever you have on hand.
Grate the zucchini in a medium size bowl. In the recipe I say 3 or 4 zucchini, but I ended up using only 2 large ones. Strain as much of the water as you can from them with paper towels.
Add the remaining ingredients to the zucchini.
Now mix everything well, get your hands in there and get dirty. If you find the mixture is too wet, add a bit more flour, especially if you didn’t remove all the water from the zucchini. I actually ended up using half a cup of flour for mine. Your mixture should look like this:
In a medium or large skillet, heat a bit of oil and turn the heat to medium. Take a spoon and drop a tablespoon of the zucchini mixture in the skillet, or use your hands to form a ball then flatten it for a patty.
It will take a few minutes per side, about 3 or 4 minutes, then flip them over and fry on the other side.
Repeat with the remaining zucchini mixture. If you’re not a zucchini fan, I still think you’ll like these, they are so cheesy and just delicious. I love anything with provolone and Parmesan cheese in them.
That’s what I’m having for lunch today.
